Cape Grace

World Travel Magazine - - Cape Town Stays Where To Stay -

Beloved by the Clin­tons and the Obama’s, the ele­gant Cape Grace ho­tel sits right on the water­side – of­fer­ing guests ex­clu­sive use of its very own quay. Be­ing so cen­tral to the famed V&A Wa­ter­front en­sures nights out on the tiles with­out the worry of get­ting home. There is noth­ing cookie cut­ter about Cape Grace; she wears her his­tor­i­cal naval crown proudly - as nau­ti­cal in­spi­ra­tion meshes with an­tique touches. There is an in­dul­gence of senses as the art­work, fur­nish­ings, and de­sign el­e­ments have been picked to evoke a stir­ring within. Mar­ble bath­rooms, French doors with har­bour views and freshly cut flow­ers be­side the well-dressed bed en­cour­age a sigh of de­light ev­ery time you click the door closed. With 122 rooms, this bou­tique gem man­ages to make ev­ery cor­ner feel unique. The staff en­sure that ev­ery sec­ond of your stay is a seam­less de­light – of­fer­ing ori­en­ta­tion tours and wine tast­ings and never mis­pro­nounc­ing your name. If you de­cide to stay put for the evening then the in-house Sig­nal Restau­rant won’t dis­ap­point with its white linen, heavy crys­tal chan­de­liers and dreamy but­ter curry risot­tos and tin­gling rasp­berry sor­bets. Af­ter­wards, head to the Bas­cule Bar for the best se­lec­tion of whiskeys in town.
